Fresh off three consecutive title contentions and one round into what would become a Rocket Mortgage Classic victory earlier this week, Bryson DeChambeau was installed as a co-favorite for this year’s upcoming three major championships by at least one sportsbook.

After clinching that win, he became the favorite all by himself.

On Sunday evening, after a final-round 65 that cemented DeChambeau’s sixth career PGA TOUR title, he was moved to 10/1 in SuperBookUSA for next month’s PGA Championship, plus the U.S. Open and Masters Tournament.

Rory McIlroy, the previous favorite, is listed at 12/1, followed by the quartet of Jon Rahm, Justin Thomas, Dustin Johnson and Brooks Koepka at 16/1. Tiger Woods is 20/1 for the PGA, 25/1 for the U.S. Open and 16/1 for the Masters.

Jeff Sherman, the VP of Risk Management for SuperBookUSA, previously tweeted on Thursday that DeChambeau’s odds had equaled those of McIlroy for the first time.

In 14 career major championship starts, DeChambeau has never finished better than T-15, a result he posted at the 2016 U.S. Open, just after turning pro. Last year, he finished T-29 at the Masters and T-35 at the U.S. Open, missing the cut at the Open Championship and PGA Championship.

The current iteration of DeChambeau, however, feels like a player who could – and perhaps should – start contending for major titles.

At Detroit GC this week, he led the field in driving distance, strokes gained tee-to-green and strokes gained putting – a rarely seen combination of talents.

DeChambeau has now finished in the top-10 in each of his last seven PGA TOUR starts – a sterling run of form which shows results of 1st-6th-8th-3rd-4th-2nd-5th.

This year’s PGA Championship will be held at TPC Harding Park, Aug. 6-9. The U.S. Open will be Sept. 17-20 at Winged Foot GC and the Masters will be contested Nov. 12-15 at Augusta National GC. The Open Championship has been canceled for 2020.
